Police in Sacramento, California, arrested 85 demonstrators - including a local reporter - Monday night at a march held in protest of the decision not to prosecute two police officers involved in the death of Stephon Clark.
Five minutes after the two officers fired on Clark they found him facedown.
Officers Terrance Mercadal and Jared Robinet say they mistakenly thought Clark was approaching them with a gun after he ran into his grandparents' backyard as police investigated vandalism.
"There's a young man who's no longer alive, with two sons who won't have a father, whose mother I just met with, who's grieving". Of course it was a tough call. "But we have to do the job before us".
Sacramento police later confirmed that a total of 84 people were arrested. The man told the clerk who was calling the next person, "Shut the f-- up, I'm going to keep on talkin'".

More than 80 people were arrested in Monday night's demonstrations, including a reporter for the Sacramento Bee, the newspaper reported. He said the department has additional police officers deployed "if anything flares up".
Dozens of people staged the march in a wealthy area of the city after prosecutors declined to file charges against police who shot Stephon Clark last March. An independent autopsy found that Clark was shot eight times, with six of those wounds in his back, according to a forensic pathologist retained by Clark's family. The reporter was later released.
Video footage from the officers' body cameras and a police helicopter flying overhead showed that after being cornered in the backyard, Clark suddenly moved toward the two policemen with something in his hand, and that there was glimmer of bright light the officers took for a muzzle flash, Becerra said. Leaders of Black Lives Matter Sacramento weren't immediately available for comment.
Schubert explained, "We look at all these facts and circumstances, we look at everything". Becerra is seen here during a press conference past year.
Speaking Tuesday, Becerra said his office undertook the 11-month investigation at the behest of Sacramento Police Chief Daniel Hahn.
"Stephon was unarmed and in no way a threat". Even then, they did not call for medical care even though he was bleeding profusely.
It came three days after Sacramento County District Attorney Anne Marie Schubert ruled out charges, leading to renewed protests.
